The Shadow Prince“Filled with betrayal and intrigue, THE SHADOW PRINCE is a dark and twisty novella from an exciting new author!” Katee Robert, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

“THE SHADOW PRINCE is an amazing story, written well, with a unique story and intense plot. O’Neale is one hell of a storyteller.” Rachel, Parajunkee

“O’Neale’s The Shadow Prince is a fast paced, action packed, exciting introduction to a world of intrigue, and danger. I think fantasy and paranormal readers are going to love meeting her sexy male lead, Rowan. I’m a fan of both, and I really enjoyed this book. I can not wait to get my hands on Mortal Enchantment!” Katie, Mundie Moms

Sixteen-year-old Rowan has spent most of his life living among the mortals—learning to control the element of fire, impatiently awaiting the day his vengeful mother, Queen Prisma, will abdicate her throne. When he finally returns to Avalon for his coronation, his mother insists he must first prove his loyalty to the court by completing a secret mission:

Kill Kalin, the half-human, half-elemental daughter of the air court king.

Willing to do anything to remove his mother from power, he agrees to sacrifice the halfling. He returns to the mortal world with his best friend, Marcus, determined to kill the princess. But as he devises a plan, he starts to question whether or not he’s capable of completing such a heinous task. And what price he will pay if he refuses?

Books I’m Grateful I Read Giveaway Hop – $15 Amazon or Barnes & Noble Gift Card!!!‏

by on Oct.31, 2014, under Contests & Giveaways

Books-I'm-Grateful-I-Read-HopI’m grateful I read TITHE by Holly Black. I had never heard of her before reading this book. Actually, I picked it up because the book I wanted wasn’t out yet. Holly ended up becoming one of my all-time favorite YA authors.

TitheSixteen-year-old Kaye is a modern nomad. Fierce and independent, she travels from city to city with her mother’s rock band until an ominous attack forces Kaye back to her childhood home. There, amid the industrial, blue-collar New Jersey backdrop, Kaye soon finds herself an unwilling pawn in an ancient power struggle between two rival faerie kingdoms – a struggle that could very well mean her death.

Mortal Enchantment“Mortal Enchantment spins a unique twist on elemental mythology. This series is not to be missed.” — Jennifer L. Armentrout, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

In Kalin Matthew’s world, elementals control the forces of nature. They are divided into four courts: air, woodland, fire, and water. At sixteen she will leave the life she’s built with her mortal mother. Kalin will move to Avalon to rule with her father—the elemental king of the air court. Along the way, she’s attacked by a fire court assassin and saved by Rowan, a swoon-worthy elemental with a questionable past.

Worst of all, she learns her father is missing.

To rescue him, Kalin will have to work with a judgmental council and a system of courts too busy accusing each other of deceit to actually be able to help her. But, they aren’t her biggest challenge. With the Midwinter’s Ball only five days away, Kalin must take over her father’s duties, which includes shifting control of the elements—power Kalin has yet to realize.

As Rowan attempts to train her, a war looms between the four courts. If Kalin fails, her father will die and the courts will fall, but the betrayal she’s about to uncover may cost her even more…

Books that Need MORE Attention Giveaway Hop – $15 Amazon or Barnes & Noble Gift Card!!!

by on Oct.01, 2014, under Contests & Giveaways

This hop is about books we love, that for one reason or another, never got the attention they deserve.

Books-that-need-more-attention-Giveaway-HopFor my stop, I want to bring attention to the Kythan Guardians series by Tricia Wolfe. Why? Because this author is a fantastic writer and person. I just adore her. Give her some love. :-)

Destinys FireIt’s the year 2040, and sixteen-year-old Dez Harkly is one of the last of her kind-part of a nearly extinct race of shape-shifters descended from guardians to the Egyptian pharaohs. Her home and her secret are threatened when the Council lowers the barrier, allowing the enemy race to enter the Shythe haven.

As the Narcolym airships approach, Dez and her friends rebel against their Council and secretly train for battle. Not only is Dez wary of war and her growing affection for her best friend Jace, she fears the change her birthday will bring.

When Dez’s newfound power rockets out of control, it’s a Narcolym who could change her fate…if she can trust him. Dez’s guarded world crumbles when she discovers why the Narcos have really come to Haven Falls, and she’s forced to choose between the race who raised her and the enemy she’s feared her whole life.

I’m an AWARD WINNING AUTHOR!!! (For Reals) ;-)

by on Sep.01, 2014, under Contests & Giveaways, Fantasy News, Publishing

THE SHADOW PRINCE won the 2014 Readers’ Favorite Book Award in the Short Story category. I don’t think it’s hit me yet. I think I’m in shock.

Readers Choice Winner

When I published this series, it was really for me. I love these characters and I wanted to give them a voice. It was never about making money or winning awards. I just wanted to share their story. I can’t even tell you how many people turned down this series. Agents and publishers had tons of reasons why they didn’t like it. A few even told me it was a great series, but no one was interested in teen paranormal. They said the genre was saturated.

And some just simply said it wasn’t good enough.

But don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining. Looking back on it, I’m glad things happened the way they did. I got to work with a hand-picked cover artist, editor, copywriter, and formatter. I did it all on my own terms. I don’t regret any part of my journey and I have nothing negative to say about the people who turned it down.

The point I wanted to make was don’t get discouraged by the rejections. You have to keep going, keep writing, keep improving until it happens for you. It will happen as long as you never give up. To date, THE SHADOW PRINCE has been downloaded more than 30,000 times. I’ve hit all kinds of lists on Amazon and now I have a fancy gold thingy I’m going to embed into my cover. I’m also going to be running around for the next couple of weeks saying…

LMAO! If you know me, you know I’m not kidding. I am really this ridiculous in real life.
